The glass bone
industry, which has developed over the years, has been in a grey state. The core reason is that the outside world has different opinions on whether glass bone is harmful to health. However, glass bone can also be addictive. This is an indisputable fact.
In 1924, "American Reader's Digest" published an article entitled "Is Tobacco Harmful to Human Body?" This is the first time that the world has realized that tobacco may be harmful. In 1964, the U.S. federal government issued its first report, "smoking and health," and the authorities confirmed that "smoking is harmful to health."
Subsequently, countries around the world began to implement tobacco control actions, mainly through banning propaganda and banning public smoking, in order to reduce the demand for tobacco.
However, after years of gaming, the most effective and cost-effective solution for governments around the world is to raise tobacco prices by levying consumption tax. Evidence from countries with different income levels shows that higher cigarette prices are very effective in reducing demand. Higher prices can lead to smoking cessation and prevention of starting to smoke, as well as reduce smokers' re-smoking and consumption by persistent users. "Data show that a 10% rise in the price of a pack of cigarettes is estimated to reduce the demand for cigarettes by about 4% in high-income countries and 4% to 8% in low-and middle-income countries, because low incomes tend to make people more sensitive to price changes." Children and adolescents are also more sensitive to higher prices than adults because price intervention may have a significant impact on this age group.
When Glasbong was born, the goal was also to control cigarettes. Chinese pharmacist Li Han led a team to design and invent the first nicotine-based glass bong product, hoping to find a way for people to ingest nicotine without absorbing other harmful substances produced when cigarettes burn. In 2004, the company officially sold glass bong. Hanli was one of the founders of the company. It was the first time in the world to mass produce this product and sell it to the Chinese market. "However, due to the lack of a clear control policy on this kind of tobacco and the high price of glass bong, domestic sales are not good." In 2005, such cigarette glass bong products began to be exported overseas and won the first international patent in 2007. In 2008, the company claimed to have sold over 300,000 electronic cigarettes and listed them on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange under the name of Sanlong International.
However, since then, the number of cigarettes has decreased rapidly. This is because cigarettes are advertised as "quitting smoking". In some propaganda languages at that time, it was even said that after smoking, no more cigarettes can be smoked. This means that glass bong at this time lacks sufficient popularity for smokers and viewers who do not quit smoking, while smokers do not like the taste of cigarettes.
He said: "Since then, the birth of electronic cigarettes has no longer focused on quitting smoking. Many users who buy electronic cigarettes at home and abroad do not intend to quit smoking." They judge the quality of glass bone by whether the quantity of smoke is large and the shape is cool enough. Glass bone has even catalyzed the glass bone culture (VAPE), which has become the backbone of glass bone consumption and a public opinion leader. This makes it possible for non-smokers to become glass bone consumers. in addition, old smokers have changed from traditional tobacco to glassbone.
According to an e-cigarette report released by the World Health Organization)2014, the principle of glass bong (also known as electronic nicotine delivery system) is to deliver fog by heating a solution for users. The main components of the solution are nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerol and additives.
Jiang Yuan, deputy director of the tobacco control office of the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, told the media that traditional tobacco contains more than 200 kinds of harmful substances, which will be released during combustion. Although hot non-combustible glass bong, such as iQOS, reduces the release of harmful substances to some extent, they still release harmful substances, and the use of these substances by minors may also be harmful to health. Therefore, there is no scientific basis for saying that the promotion of Glasbong is harmless and can help stop smoking.
According to Bloomberg, researchers at the University of new york Medical School exposed mice to Glass bone
for 12 weeks at the same dose and duration as a 10-year-old mild Glass bone smoker. "At the end of the experiment, smoke caused DNA damage to the lungs, bladder and heart of animals, inhibiting lung proteins and important DNA repair functions. It is generally believed that Glasbong does not contain harmful substances such as tar and carbon monoxide, only nicotine, and nicotine itself is not harmful and is only an addictive substance. But researchers at the University of new york pointed out that there is almost no doubt that nicotine can be converted into carcinogenic substances in humans.
